@jemostrom I can relate to that. It's been many years during which neither me nor my fiancé has had Facebook and we've certainly missed things. For regular updates on life Instagram seems to work more or less as well but a lot of people uses Facebook for events. There have been parties that we haven't been invited to simply because our friends didn't really think about the fact that we don't have Facebook.
That being said, those things aren't solved by my cross-posting but at least I'm not creating my own semi closed-off space where I post things and forget about the people who don't want or can't use RSS feeds or similar things.
